Held over 9 days, over 25 balloons from around Australia and overseas combine making the Canberra skyline a flurry of colour, sound and movement and a spectacle to remember. The balloons launch each morning from Patrick White Lawns, with balloon inflation from 6.15 am and launch around 7am, weather permitting. For those who have braved the dawn start there’s a hot breakfast to enjoy as the balloons lift off and drift across the dawn sky. Be sure to check out the balloons throughout the morning with great views around the lake and from the Arboretum.
The balloons are scheduled to fly daily, weather permitting, from 12 -20 March. Daily announcements if balloons will launch and fly are made at 6.15am and published on enlightencanberra.com and via the Enlighten Festival and EventsACT social channels.
This event is free for spectators.
